Inception – 19 April 2014:
To begin with, Candytech was Born on 19 April 2014 and is close to 4 years old now. The Idea was to create a website that offers Quality tech articles and advice to the readers.
We have got enormous success and praise from readers in the short span of time. So far Candytech is visited by 1.9 Crore readers with over 4.2 crore page views since launch.
Also, there are 57K social media influencers and email readers. There are over 6613 comments on the blog and we have helped and advised 1000s of readers in the last few years.
My Story – How it all Started?
I bought my first graphics card an Nvidia MX 400 when I was 17 years old, in the year 2001. I had a Celeron processor and Asus motherboard, when I first added the graphics card, the effect was magical.
On my old CRT monitor, Games like IGI and Max Payne, Need for Speed 4 & 5 looked breathtaking. Even before that, I use to play games like Prince or Pacman on the old 386 and 486 PCs.
In subsequent years, I learned more about graphics cards, processors, overclocking, benchmarks, testing hardware, Android custom ROMs, App/Web development, SEO, Photoshop and Video editing. The journey continued, and in 2014 I got inspired to create Candytech.in for helping readers looking for trustworthy information.
I had my share of hiccups on this journey, I hard bricking a mobile and burnt a processor while overclocking. Apart from these, I also like programming, C & C++, and specialize in analytics like SPSS & SAS, Google Analytics.
Being a blogger teaches a lot of things, writing and sharing is just a small part. I learned WordPress, how to make a website, SEO, Social media marketing, a bit of coding, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro & Final Cut Pro X, and many more things.
Blogging is Awesome !!!
About ME: Kanuj Sharma (Editor and Founder)
On the academic front, I did Engineering from Kurukshetra University followed by an MBA from FORE School of management. The love for gadgets and technology remained (education ruins you).
I ran Candytech along with my Job initially but after 2.5 years of running the website. In 2017, I decided to give up my high paying job in the telecom sector (@ Ideacellular) as an AGM and work full time on Candytech.
Besides, I have 9 years of enriching experience in the Telecom sector mostly in consumer insights, analytics, product management, pricing, marketing.
My Gadgets: I personally now use Asus 5Z, a PC with overclocked Core i7 6700K with GTX 1060, a MacBook Pro, and a Lenovo Yoga 710 laptop.
I have also started a new blog profoundblogger.com where I write articles on blogging and SEO.
How Candytech Grew from Just a FaceBook Page to a Popular Website
The year 2014 – I started a Facebook page and started sharing articles/reviews, to share the knowledge with the tech community. I had no idea back then, that I will have a website one day.
However, Facebook limits the post reach. (You need to pay FaceBook for higher reach).
I was new to this but realized Facebook is not the platform to use, so I searched for some days and read about blogger/WordPress and decided to start a small website.
WordPress looked more refined, it impressed me with better aesthetics and customizability.
I bought WP hosting and began the journey. I had no knowledge of websites, SEO or Social media at the time. Just took the leap of faith, and trusted that God will help me move ahead.
